Explosion after explosion rocked the USS Turner — detonations so powerful that they broke windows in the buildings near New York’s harbor, more than a mile away.

A final and particularly violent explosion ripped the Gleaves-class destroyer in two. By 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 3, 1944 — less than two hours after the initial, internal explosion — the Turner was submerged in the Atlantic Ocean. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/11/23/a-military-historians-find-could-unlock-the-mystery-of-136-sailors-missing-since-wwii/?utm_term=.4b40244774a5
